Take Five Bistro

Take Five Bistro

Windsor’s finest steaks, chops and seafood.

At Take Five Bistro, we’re proud to support the local economy. All of our meat and produce is grown and raised in Ontario to ensure our customers are getting the finest and freshest ingredients possible.

Co-owers and chefs, Paul Sauve and Cody Northgrave, are committed to providing quality service and a cozy atmosphere, with great food, friendly staff and a full, licensed bar.




From the picturesque streets of Casalvieri, a legacy that has been preserved through generations, has been brought to the tables of Spago more than three decades ago. A legacy that mixes the simplicity and genuine spirit of the people of Ciociaria with the richness of its land. A legacy that Nonno Vitti brought from Italy to North America and that was passed to Peter and Ralph, a legacy that is now displayed on the tables at any of our three locations.

Driven by a dream, the two brothers have managed to combine the tradition of Casalvieri specializing themselves in fresh pasta noodles, authentic Italian dishes, and traditional homemade desserts, all made daily in order to exceed the expectations you have when coming to Spago and of course accompanied by the impeccable service only a true Italian family can provide.




Owner Mike Ciliberto has been serving the Windsor – Detroit area with his passion for cooking since 1979. Following in his Father’s tradition of excellence Mike’ son Joe works closely with his father serving up infused Italian dishes of his very own.

Offering fine dining with an extensive menu, LaGuardia features a variety of antipasto, carne, pesce, insalata, pizza, and desserts served in an intimate setting. Prepared fresh daily you can savour the taste of Italy in our rustic contemporary dining room.
